Lowell Community Rowing - LEARN TO SWEEP ROW

Learn To Sweep Row $125... Sign Up with a Friend and You Both Row for $99 Each

The Lowell Community Rowing Learn-To-Sweep program has openings for anyone 18 or older who wants to learn how to row in a team-oriented and low-pressure learning environment. In this program, the student will learn the very basics of rowing, including basic safety precautions, terminology of the sport and the essential mechanics of the art of rowing. You'll spend most of each session on the water in a relaxed learning environment that will give you a good foundation about the sport, and a great low-impact aerobic workout. You will learn in a classic "eight" sweep boat. The boat will have eight rowers, one oar each plus a coxswain and a coach accompanying on a launch.

Visit the Learn to Row Sweep for more information or Download the Program Flyer.
